Please find information below to help with transportation planning for breaks and long weekends.
General Bus Information
When & Where: Millbrook School runs buses for Thanksgiving, winter break, and spring break, directly to and from the following local airports: Bradley International (BDL), LaGuardia (LGA), John. F. Kennedy (JFK). All flights must be coordinated around the bus schedule if you choose to participate.
Please note that busing is only available to the Wassaic Train Station for all other breaks, open weekends, and long weekends, including fall and spring parents weekends. Any airport travel that needs to be coordinated during one of these times must be coordinated personally.
Busing is also not available for opening days, and, therefore, students and their families are expected to coordinate their own travel to campus for the start of school.
Cost: The cost of a bus ticket is $100 each way. Fees are non-refundable. All fees associated with busing are charged to the student's My Millbrook Spending account.
How to Sign Up: Students who wish to participate in transportation services should fill out the appropriate form on the right side of this page. Please note that a separate form must be submitted for each student (e.g., siblings must complete separate forms).
